CAPITAL BREWERY CANS NOW AVAILABLE IN NOVEL 6 PACK DESIGN
Monday, February 29, 2016
    MIDDLETON, WI - February 29, 2016 - Do you enjoy craft beer in cans? Is a 12 Pack too much? Now you can have it both ways with many of Capital Brewery’s award winning beers in 6 Pack cartons!

    Capital Wisconsin Amber, Maibock, Supper Club, Ghost Ship, and Mutiny IPA are now available in both 12 pack cans and 6 pack cans.

    The high resolution cartons feature convenient finger holds and gives the 6 packs a great look plus it eliminates using plastic caps or rings!

    “Six pack cans are the fastest growing package configuratition in the craft beer world right now. In 2015 craft cans more than doubled in sales posting a +104% increase. Craft consumers are telling us they want a 6 pack can for the convience,” added Corey Wehling, Vice President of Sales.

    A major benefit to beer in cans is that no light or oxygen are able to get to the beer, and craft consumers are understanding the benefit of this more and more.

    Founded on March 14, 1984, Capital brewed its first batch of beer in the spring of 1986. The company has received over 235 major awards in both domestic and international competitions in over 15 categories, and Wisconsin Amber has been available in cans since 1997. Capital was named Grand National Champion in the 2013 US Open Beer Championship, winning six medals.

Door County Brewing Company Introduces Le printemps Farmhouse Ale
Friday, February 19, 2016



    Baileys Harbor, WI, February 19, 2016 – Door County Brewing Company will release a new, limited time farmhouse ale on March 1. This spring seasonal, Le printemps, is the third in line, following L’automne and L’hiver, the brewery’s fall and winter ales.

    “We decided to go a completely traditional route with the recipe development for
    Le printemps,” said Head Brewer Danny McMahon. “This should make it stand out from our two previous seasonal releases, in which we took more liberty in experimentation.”

    According to McMahon, its incorporation of rye, oats, and spelt, as well as a spicy Saaz hop aroma, contribute to the beer’s overall rustic nature. As a company that prides itself on its Belgian heritage, this brew is one more tip of the hat to local tradition.

    Le printemps will be available until May 1. Find it in Wisconsin and Minnesota stores and bars while the snow melts.

He began professionally racing in 2009 competing in Europe as a member of the USA Cycling under-23 National Road Cycling Team for four years.

The partnership is also a great way for us to get our brand out in the mountain bike community while making a serious investment in the sport.”
